Chinese homestay booking provider Tujia has partnered Siteminder to streamline its back-end stock management and pricing system as well as provide a single lodging management platform for overseas hosts.
Beta testing of the platform development is ongoing, and the function is expected to be rolled out to all hosts who use the service outside China starting mid-July. When the service goes live, Tujia is expected to have a real-time inventory of over 50,000 room nights each day.
Tujia said in a statement that overseas homestays tend to be booked through one of several disparate platforms, so hosts have to adapt to the operation of multiple systems and deal with the associated costs.
With the Siteminder partnership and an update of its ‘Tujia WAKA’ overseas booking platform, the Chinese vacation rental platform hopes to give hosts an improved management experience.
Thousands of lodging listings on Tujia’s platform are already utilising SiteMinder.
